The red Cross and the Occupation

Learn more about how The Red Cross were a lifeline for the Island of Guernsey from 1940-45 during WWII.

Red Cross letters were the only link with the outside world and their loved ones. Later Red Cross parcels, that were distributed by St John, provided ‘vital’ food and clothes; thus keeping islanders alive during the end of the German Occupation.
